Transition of Thoughts

Weaving thoughts into words

Dine-in in the post pandemic world

Dine-in in a post pandemic world

I had the oddest feeling of fear as I entered the restaurant for the first time after the pandemic struck. It had been months since dine-in had been shut and now when things were starting back again, it just felt weird to start all over. While I didn’t have to really encounter anyone as the place was mostly unoccupied, I did irritate everyone around me with one of my idiosyncrasies which was to ask as many questions as possible about how clean things were.

  1. That’s a very understandable reaction… does feel odd going to a restaurant again, especially when you don’t feel they are practicing good social distancing. Have a good day.

      Yeah I guess the fear will be definitely be there especially the feeling of going into the unknown.

  2. Yes, that would definitely irritate everyone around — definitely spoil some appetites. 🙂 I guess it comes of the misconception that a virus is like a germ. I still haven’t wrapped my head around how hand sanitizer can kill something that isn’t alive, but I just go with the flow and hope. 🙂

      Oh yes, the fear is going to take quite a while before it goes away. Yeah I guess sanitizers have become some of the most valuable items on the market these days :D. We are all going with the flow in our own little ways, aren’t we? 🙂

  3. Inside dining in restaurants is still not permitted where we live.

      Ahh can completely understand. I guess only in certain parts of the world dine-in has started and that too with restrictions.
